Wild Dogs of the Thunderbolt / 'They Cannot Lock Me Up... I Am Eternally Free...

'The album was recorded in a century old house  apparently bound for destruction.

"your bulldozers and wrecking ball can make match-sticks out of the rickety staircase and crookt/creaking floorboards---but they can't erase the recording that was made here."

As such, several sounds usually edited out of the recording process, including creaking floors, paper shuffling and outside noises, were left intact on the final album.

The most notable occurrence is that of a police car driving by with its siren blaring at the end of "Love Song for 15 Ontario"; the vehicle was later credited as a guest performer on the song.'
